Re: Placing a big figure

Try adding the p option to the figure environment to say that it can take up the entire page
  1. \begin{figure}[hp]


If that doesn't work can you post an MWE, random bits of code are no good.

Re: Single bibtex file for all documents

That's exactly what bibtex does. It you don't cite it in your document, it wont appear in the bibliography. Compile the MWE below. mwe.tex \documentclass{article} \begin{document} Blah Blah Blah~\cite{one}. \bibliographystyle{plain} \bibliography{mwe} \end{document} mwe.bib @ARTICLE{one, author =&qu...

Re: listoffigures like section and NOT section*

This seems like a bit if a dirty hack, but could you manually add the number like this
  1. \listoffigures
  2. \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{5\ \ \ \listfigurename}

Obviously change the number and perhaps the space between the number and title so it is right for you.

Re: font size

I haven't used them, but the titlesec and titletoc packages are discussed a lot on the forum when people want to do the same as you.

Re: Is pdfopt worth using?

I didn't search long enough. It seems if, as I am, you will be distributing a document via email or usb, then pdfopt has little use as the optimization will increase the file size, allowing easier access when being viewed on the internet?! I found this short thread on the postscript forum http://www...

Is pdfopt worth using?

Hi all, I have just been reading about pdfopt. http://linux.die.net/man/1/pdfopt I understand that if you have a link to a pdf on the internet then it can be useful, as the entire thing doesn't necessarily need to be downloaded in order to view a certain page. However, is it worth using on documents...

Re: PDF prints various sizes

Are the default paper sizes the same on both machines, and when you convert to pdf do you specify what page size to use? To be on the safe side, I specify my page size at every step \documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article} %Physical A4 size - 21.0 x 29.7 cm \usepackage[a4paper,dvips,showframe, top = 2....

Re: Selective use of T1 font encoding

Thanks for the response. I made the pdf using latex->dvips->ps2pdf, the viewer was acrobat reader, but it looks the same with xpdf and yes, I did uncomment the mathptmx line. You are right, it is the mathptmx package, if I use lmodern it looks like the top example, but of course all of the other tex...

Selective use of T1 font encoding

I have a fraction within a sum so want to enlarge the size of the summation symbol which I can do with a \scalebox as so \documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{report} \usepackage{graphicx} %\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} %\usepackage{mathptmx} %\usepackage[scaled=.90]{helvet} %\usepackage{courier} \def\Sum{\ensure...

Re: TOC disable subsection of appendix

Use \section*{Section name} for all of your appendix sections.
